Dump Dogg plastic insert weight?

Sold my bri mar insert in the fall. I got sick of it being back there all the time and it needed paint. I do miss it somewhat though. Just curious what the plastic poly ones weigh. I think my bri mar was 800.

Im curious to this as well. And also as to how well they hold up! I dont mind putting a fresh coat of paint on a dump insert each year, but the plastic/polyetheline and aluminum seem to be a better choice for the payload advantage. And they look nicer.

Ya I was afraid of that. The only weight I could find was the shipping weight on northern tool catalog, 1000 lbs. Thats one of the main reasons I got rid of the steel one. In a gas truck the mpg and power is noticable. Not drastic but noticable. Of course pay load is a factor too.
